Chainsmokers' Alex Pall sorry for comment about China

The Chainsmokers Just Laughed Over a Racist Joke About Eating Dogs in China The Chainsmokers Walk Back Racially Insensitive 'Joke' About China

The Chainsmokers have been criticised after producer Alex Pall made a joke about Asia that has been described as racist.

The video has since been deleted from their Twitter, but not before it had a huge impact online, with followers divided down the middle on how to take the comment.

'I mean if she could come anywhere, I'd bring her.

While many rushed to their defense, others branded them "racist" for their insensitivity and for making a sweeping generalisation.

Rory KramerThe Chainsmokers' Alex Pall has apologized for comments he made during an interview while promoting the duo's performance at the Ultra festival in China this past weekend.

It has been stated that he was referring to the country's tradition of eating dog meat.

"The interview was posted as it was meant to highlight how much the Chainsmokers love China and all of their fans there", they wrote in a statement. "We would never intentionally do anything to upset our fans and we apologize if we offended anyone".

The Chainsmokers actually shared video of that exchange on their official Twitter page, before realizing that it likely wasn't helping them to appeal to their Asian fans. Furthermore, there is a very real history of dogs being eaten in China, and still to this day, including the Lychee and Dog Meat Festival in Yulin, China. There was an added layer of criticism because the duo just collaborated with wildly popular Korean pop group BTS, which has also seen backlash.
